Well, that's not really the same. In the first one, you point the
externals to /repos/zag at revision 1234. In the second one, you point
the externals to /repos/zag at HEAD with peg revision 1234 (HEAD could
be /repos/zag at HEAD, or it could be /repos/somethingelse at HEAD but
with somethingelse being zag at revision 1234 and renamed to
somethingelse later on).

But yes, the peg revisions can be used that way in the svn:external
property.
